July – September
The MacKenzie Mountains is home to arguably some of the finest trophy big game hunting in North America. This 9,000 square mile concession (nearly 6 million acres) has been operated by the same outfitter for over forty years and has produced some of the top scoring Dall Sheep, Alaska-Yukon Moose, and Mountain Caribou in the world! These ten day, helicopter-assisted hunts offer serious sheep hunters ample time and plenty of country to harvest an outstanding, older-age class ram. Most years hunters take multiple rams larger than 40″ with a solid average of 37″. As a bonus, giant mountain caribou can be added to a sheep hunt on a trophy fee basis. Each season, bulls in excess of 400″ are harvested! This hunt has it all: great animals, good food, good camps and exceptional guides. This outfitter and his personnel are hardworking, hands on, and great hosts. These hunts are in high demand so book early. #082
